Did the clip stop because the professor next mugged the guy with the camera?

Mike Tyson rage and a PeeWee Herman body. Dangerous combination.

I've had a prof do pretty much the same thing - except he put it on a table and slammed a book on it...

Then again, I don't see why you should have a phone on in class. I've had one situation where this was the case (family emergency) and simply asked my prof in advance if I could leave it on. It's common courtesy...

Guessing this guy didn't.
